The Monotypes of Louis Schanker
Most are approximately 9 X12 in. on fine rice paper. Many are signed and dated 1948.
A monotype is a single print
pulled from a
glass or metal plate on which ink or paint has
been applied. The image can be transferred
to paper by hand rubbing or with a press. A
monotype remains one of a kind because it
contains no repeatable matrix in the image
from which a perfect second impression
can be made.
